The Feast of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart

May 25, 2019

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart is a title given to Mary by the founder of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, Fr. Jules Chevalier, as a special devotion in thanks for her help and intercession in founding the missionary order. The Feast Day of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart falls on May 26, 2018, and the novena for her intercession begins on May 19.

Fr. Chevalier also wanted to honor Mary’s unique graces and honors given to her by God over the heart of his son. The MSC entrust to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart all difficult, extreme and hopeless cases, both spiritual and temporal. Over the years, the devotion to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart has grown in religious orders and faith communities around the world.
